The Commission approves the application by Maritime Broadcasting System Limited (Maritime) for authority to acquire the assets of the radio programming undertaking CJRW-FM Summerside, from The Gulf Broadcasting Company Limited (Gulf), and for a broadcasting licence to continue the operation of this undertaking.

Upon surrender of the current licence, the Commission will issue a licence to Maritime, expiring 31 August 2004, the current licence expiry date.The operation of this undertaking will be regulated pursuant to the Radio Regulations, 1986. The licence will be subject to the conditions set out in New licence form for commercial radio stations, Public Notice CRTC 1999-137, 24 August 1999.


Because this licensee is subject to the Employment Equity Act and files reports with Human Resources Development Canada, its employment equity practices are not examined by the Commission.
